Myself in Dots

29 Feb

"Myself in Dots", drawing, pen & ink.

 Description: Pointillism (a post-impressionist school of painting exemplified by Georges Seurat and his followers in late 19th-century France characterized by the application of paint in small dots and brush strokes) has always been a passion of mine and I have been doing various pointillism works since 2004. Instead of paint, I used a .05 fine tipped pen. This particular self portrait took about 6 weeks to complete, the hair being the most painstaking part, because of the precise position of each dot and the layering/pressure needed to create the different shades. It takes a lot of patience but it is a fun way to pass the time, give it a try!
